Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cataract surgery is the most performed surgical procedure in the world, with excellent patient satisfaction and success rates. While this is, of course, is a positive thing, it also means that the contrast is stark when problems arise.

A recent issue in the field of eye surgery in Japan is the misplacement of intraocular lenses. It is not uncommon for this type of surgery to be performed in more than 10 cases in a row, and problems around the insertion of intraocular lenses prepared for patients have been reported frequently in medical safety investigations.

Clinical cataract surgery practices in their current form have helped to reduce the number and severity of cases of astigmatism and enabled the selection of multifocal lenses, and thus, our expectations around the postoperative status of patients are now greater. This means that, regardless of how easy it is to replace intraocular lenses, under no circumstances is it acceptable for the surgeon to make an IOL insertion error that requires the patient to undergo unnecessary revision surgery.

Another aspect of this field, arising from the fact that the surgical techniques involved are maximally advanced, is nonsurgical management, where progress is urgently needed. Thus, this Special Issue invites experts in the field to report on the various initiatives taking place around the world on the stages before and after cataract surgery.
